I have a very annoying problem and I would greatly appreciate your help. The problem is following:
A few days ago I've noticed that my graphic card is running at 100%. Because I wasn't playing any games or running applications that would use GPU, I've opened Process Explorer and killed every process that wasn't necessary. I found that the problem was checker.exe.
I've searched through whole Google and I couldn't find a solution to my problem. Shortly after I've deleted the checker.exe and all of "his" *.dll's in the folder (my User %temp folder), but it didn't solve the situation. The checker.exe came back in about 15 minutes and I've killed it again, only with minimal success. Here's a picture of quarantined files:
I figured that I should quarantine it (picture 1):
but that created another problem, shown on the picture 2 below:
I've checked the file on Bit9 FileAdvisor and here is the result (picture 3):
On another forum, some folks have suggested me that I should run multiple anti-virus and anti-spyware/malware programs and here's what I did. I went to safe mode, ran ESET Smart Security 6 (full system scan), Malware bytes PRO (full system scan) and Spybot S&D 2 (full system scan) and all of these programs detected 0 threats.
I've checked in registry for any values containing checker.exe, but there weren't any. I've also checked with msconfig for unnecessary services and start-up items, but I still haven't found why checker.exe keeps executing at random times. I've submitted it to Virustotal.com and it suggested that I have some kind of BitCoin miner.
So I ran checker.exe by myself (picture 4):
I typed URL by myself, also username and password. When I pressed enter, nothing happened.
I should aslo add that I've never installed WashAndGo or any kind of Xbox controller - Google results have shown that those programs were associated with checker.exe
The problem is that no matter what I do, checker.exe keeps comming back like a ghost. Please help me with my problem - how to get rid of it permanently!!!
